Happy October to you.
I’m pleased to say that the 5th edition of the Toolkit is now available – well done everyone at Routledge who have helped get this done ahead of schedule.
They’ve also done a flyer for the book, with 20% discount for anyone ordering a copy online, using the code at the bottom of page 1 of the flyer, which you can download here:

It was great working with such an enthusiastic large group this morning. Thanks for all the Tweets, and for diving into all the exercises and challenges I set you. The main slides from my ‘Towards Outstanding Learning’ session are here – I’ve added a few slides on ‘towards assessment as learning’ including a slide with a link to Royce Sadler’s MOOC interview, where he talks convincingly about letting students find out about standards.

I’ve been added to the very distinguished group of people holding the LTHEchat ‘Golden Tweeter’ award, along with @ProfSallyBrown! I’m accompanying her for 10 days in Manchester, (day 1 of the Assessment in Higher Education Conference), Leeds, Segovia (Spain) and York, and doing the odd bit of work in my retirement, including ‘Beyond the Tyranny of Learning Outcomes?’ on Thursday 27th June at Leeds Beckett University, where Professor Sue Smith will be giving her inaugural professorial lecture.
